Romney’s Not Perfect – But He’s Not The Monster Some Gays Imagine

I knew what we were in for when Log Cabin Republicans made the decision to issue a qualified endorsement in favor of Mitt Romney for president. Congressman Barney Frank gave us a taste of it this summer, turning abusing gay Republicans into his personal crusade since the Democratic National Convention, with many liberals eager to take up his battle cry of “Uncle Tom.”...more

S.E. Cupp and Hustler: When Liberals Hate

If you ask a liberal, “when is it okay to call a gay man a f*ggot?” he’ll probably tell you “never” – but as an employee of the national Log Cabin Republicans, an organization of LGBT Republicans and our allies, I can tell you we hear it a lot, and most often it comes from self-identified Democrats.
